This by way of the Sam Jose Mercury News: Redwood City teacher accused of slapping, kicking special needs students

If the title of the news story isn’t enough, here are some details:

A Redwood City special needs teacher faces nine misdemeanor charges for allegedly slapping, kicking and refusing food and drink to two developmentally disabled boys at Roosevelt Elementary School, a prosecutor said.
The boys were part of a special education pre-school class taught by Alexia Aliki Bogdis, 43, of Millbrae and had been abused between December and January, said San Mateo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti. One of the boys was slapped in face and kicked in the stomach, while the other had bumped into a table after the teacher kicked his chair, had his wrist twisted and was deprived of food and drink, she added.

You can read the whole story at the mercury news. Frankly I have a hard time expressing the outrage I feel at these stories.

    I would remind us all that these are allegations, and I hope there is no truth to them.
